Extras: The extras were on the light side here, a company trailer for the website, some photogalleries from the scenes, a pop shot recap, filmographies, trailers, and two company website links was all she wrote.
Audio/Video Quality: Forsaken was presented in anamorphic widescreen as shot by director Dana Vespoli for Evil Angel. The visual elements were not so easily categorized this time as the surreal nature of the feature elements did not lend themselves toward such a description. Suffice it to say that a whole lot of weird and wild camera tricks were used to make this one remind me of a host of classic porn titles from my youth, the difference being that there were also a number of very clear sex scenes included too, the surprise ending such that I’m not going to be one of those dumb fucks who ruin it for you by spoiling the ending. The fleshtones and costumed sex all helped make this one a fine little effort on the visual front, my wish that a second disc of extras be included to explore what the director was going for in some portions of the movie or how it all was brought together in a detailed BTS be included. For the record, there was a company watermark on the lower right hand corner of the screen. The aural components of the show were another matter altogether in that no convention of contemporary porn was left alone, the special effects extending to the music and such, the vocals easily heard and the music blended in to make this aspect of the feature stand out as above average, your mileage may vary unless you are into experimental art type of fuck flicks.
Body of Review: Dana Vespoli is one of the sexiest directors we’ve had blogging at Xcritic, her latest works for Evil Angel showing she is finally ready for the big time of directing. Her first flick as director for the company is called Forsaken, a feature with all sorts of hardcore sex, Dana herself involved in much of it too, with a retro style of presentation reminiscent of “Night Dreams”, “Behind the Green Door”, or other classics that were big on creativity in their day. While most fans of Evil’s other directors typically prefer straightforward gonzo, company leader John “Buttman” Stagliano routinely proves that features are not dead, his growing stash of awards and nominations serving as proof positive that there is a market. I’m not going to go into the feature elements for you as others might, the chances being that I’d reveal too much being just too great but suffice it to say, this was a very appealing fuck flick that did not seem to be so tied to current industry conventions, Ash Hollywood, Phoenix Marie, and Samantha Ryan all looking their best in their respective roles.
The company website described the movie like this: “Star performer Dana Vespoli is the newest member of the Evil Angel roster of elite pornographers, and for her debut production, the gorgeous and intense fetish queen has created a feature film made up of several passionate fuck scenes. "Forsaken" is the story of a girl who wakes up in the woods with blood on her dress, but no wounds. She has no memory of who she is and sets off to solve the mystery, having flashbacks of her life and meeting some creepy characters along the way. This is one girl's dangerous sexual odyssey into a devious, dreamy underworld, where she bears witness to acts of depravity and cannot decide if she's truly lost... or merely dreaming. That's the gist of this dark and strange tale, but the work of Dana's incredible female cast - stunning blonde protagonist Ash Hollywood, sleek and luscious brunette Samantha Ryan, plush Phoenix Marie and, of course, the sensuous director herself - has forged a spooky, alluring drama that's more than the sum of its parts. As young Ash discovers more clues to the bizarre events of the past, she sees and experiences SM-tinged hard-core sex with lovely women and big-dicked strangers, along with hallucinatory visions, all leading down to a shocking conclusion. Dana Vespoli's "Forsaken" takes the viewer on a seductive journey into the heart of erotic madness.” Here’s a brief look at the scenes by cast and action, noting that no condoms were used for those still interested:
Scene One: Dana Vespoli, the exotic director, was up first in a short tryst where her hairy snatch was already getting plowed by James Deen, the man unleashing his wad of spunk all over her face within moments of the couple being introduced. While not truly a full scene with all the trimmings, it showed a lot of energy and enthusiasm, I only wish a fuller version were available as an extra if not to be shown in the movie itself.
Scene Two: Phoenix Marie, a curvy blond extreme queen with a great ass, was up next with sexy Dana Vespoli, both of them outfitted in revealing lingerie that enhanced their bodies. They began the scene on all fours beside each other, their wonderful asses in the air as they kissed. Phoenix had on a fishnet body stocking with red satin top while Dana had a completely open view of her snatch and ass thanks to a PVC fetish skirt, her own red corset laced up to cover her frame. Ash watched them as they went at it on the pool table, the camera not as fluid as I prefer but spending a lot of time on their asses as they made out. Dana appeared infatuated with Phoenix’s ass and gave it plenty of attention, Phoenix’s flapper dress working for her as she took the dominant role to savor Dana’s ass. As she kept tasting Dana’s ass, Phoenix pulled out a large dildo to fuck her with anally, Dana reciprocating with a metal speculum on Phoenix to explore her inner workings while gobbling her gash. From there, Phoenix stuck part of her foot inside of Dana, ample oral included as she picked up the speculum for some exploration of her own. While it lacked a complete ending in my opinion, the scene was highly charged and erotic to the point of being award worthy, the scene much fuller than the last (or next) scene.
Scene Three: Dana Vespoli, still wearing her studded collar and now in a black skirt of sorts, was then up in a scene well underway where Michael Vegas was vaginally porking her on a bed as Ash rested nervously nearby. Michael sucked her toes and licked her legs, the active vaginal tryst including Dana slobbing his knob and throating his member, her devotion to getting him off soon moving to him plowing her ass as she passively took all her had to offer. He slapped her ass and she cleaned him off as well as sucked their juices off his nuts, Dana enjoying the additional positions of anal sex and fingering her gave her. This continued until she smiled at him, the guy pulling out to plaster her face with genetic juice with Dana opening her mouth to play with the population pudding but not swallow it.
Scene Four: Ash Hollywood, the attractive blond featured on the front cover, was up next as she showered in the luxurious bathroom, various imagery giving glimpses into her past as she cleaned up. Her all natural body looked good, especially her curvy ass, and soon enough the shower ended for her to find Michael Vegas waiting for her. He led her out of the large shower and kissed her, soon licking her all over though she was naked and he was adorned in all black dress clothing. As he knelt between her legs, he went down on her and licked the folds of her labia as well as rimmed her, his probative fingers reaching around her to choke her a bit, guiding her to slob his knob in front of the fireplace where she put forth a lot of energy. Ash also offered a lot of eye contact as she continued orally pleasuring him, some active vaginal riding and face sitting as she cleaned him off but the remaining penetration positions milked his nuts dry of splooge as he launched his juices all over her back.
Scene Five: Ash Hollywood, next up as she mentally retraced her romance with Manuel Ferrara, ended up making out with him while she wore a white dress. They pawed each other and could not keep their hands off as he grabbed her ass, her sweet cheeks held in check by a black thong. He spanked her and massaged her before removing the skimpy apparel to eat her as she leaned against the door frame, her panting leading them to the floor where he munched on her rug at length only to continue upstairs in the bed where the flexible lass looked especially inviting. She blew him and tossed his salad, their intensity together continuing as he started fucking her bald pussy, choking her until she aggressively rode his rod in some cowgirl variations. They moved into a 69 and some standing fucking, additional oral provided before she knelt to receive his sizable wad of ball batter to her face, clues as to what happened occurring immediately afterwards.
Scene Six: Samantha Ryan, partially wearing a black and white striped dress, was up last in bed with Manuel Ferrara, the man going down on her neatly trimmed snatch. She made faces indicating she was having a great time but seemed less demonstrative than her peers in the show, the gal stroking his pecker and giving him some light suction to tease him before giving him a full fledged hummer while kneeling before his spread out frame on the bed. As she continued, she used both hands to beat his meat slowly, her eye contact coming across as seductive, continuing as the couple bumped uglies vaginally in a multitude of positions, her most active being the cowgirl variations. The scene ended when she inhaled his cock actively while using both hands to increase the friction, his baby batter landing all over the place.

Summary: Forsaken by director Dana Vespoli for Evil Angel was edgy, artistic, and will certainly appeal to a discriminating audience looking for something way, way off the beaten track. If you prefer straightforward gonzo sex or enjoy the multitude of porn conventions used in contemporary movies, you will probably find this one obscure and off the mark but I suggest you give it a chance to see just what kind of weirdness the director can come up with when given the freedom to explore deeper themes than usual, Ash Hollywood given just enough of a meaty role to show she has potential for bigger and better things. Rating a movie like this is tougher than usual since it does not appear to be shooting for broad based appeal as much as shock value, my appreciation for scene’s two, four, and five enough to merit a healthy Recommended all by themselves. In short, Forsaken was a walk on the wild side of Dana Vespoli’s imagination, a decidedly different kind of romp than she has been allowed to make elsewhere in my opinion, and likely a good start to her newfound position as a director at Evil Angel so check it out and let me know what you think of it.
